Bountiful Season - Graciellie Design

The temperatures in NW Georgia are finally beginning to cool some.  It has felt like Fall for the past few days.  The nights are crisp and the days warm.  It makes me start thinking of Thanksgiving and Fall festivals. 

 In that frame of mind, I set about creating this card from a Graciellie Design image called Bountiful Season.  This image belongs to a digital stamp bundle calleld Thankful Words.  It is on sale in Gracie's Etsy Store for 15% off.  The bundle contains 4 lovely stamp sets.  See below.
Card Supplies:
4.25 X 5.5" card base
Image/Sentiment - Bountiful Season
Orange Foil
Border Embossing Folder from Anna Griffin Summer/Fall Folders
Cardstock from my stash
Yellow Seed Beads

The first thing I did was foil the image and sentiment with the orange foil.  That didn't present with enough color so I colored the image with Copics.  Coloring over the foil with Copics did not alter the foil.  After embossing the edge of the purple cardstock, I assembled the card as you see it. The last step was to apply the seed beads to the glue I had applied in the center of the flower.

This picture shows the foiling better.  

This is the "Thankful Words" Digital Stamp Bundle.
Thank you for visiting with me today.  I always read every comment.  Please come back soon.
